    No, Shimano low direct mount will not fit.

    From the website:

    For best results use the same make of chainset and front mech. The following front mechs work fine:
    High Direct Mount (HDM):
    Any SRAM HDM, 2x10, DUAL PULL
    Low Direct Mount (LDM):
    SRAM XX LDM 2x10 S3 42 TOP PULL- limited to 42T Chainsets

    The following Mechs need a 1mm washer between the HDM plate and the mech:
    Any SRAM HIGH DIRECT MOUNT, 3x10, DUAL PULL
    Shimano FD-M771-D (XT) 9 speed
    Shimano FD-M661-D (SLX) 9 speed
    Shimano FD-M771-10D (XT) 10 speed
    Shimano FD-M661-10D (SLX) 10 speed

    The following front mechs do not fit:
    Low Direct Mount:
    All Shimano LDM
    Eg: Shimano FD-M771-E

    All SRAM LDM excluding XX S3

    Yes i had read that from On-One`s web side, but many people says that the Shimano E2 is the same as Sram S3

    I usually trust the manufacturer over "many people". Maybe I am just crazy.
